Roberto Fonseca - ABUC makes Transglobal 'Best Albums of 2017'

Bookmark and Share

For nearly two decades, Grammy nominated pianist Roberto Fonseca has been exploring and celebrating the music of his native Cuba. As a composer, producer, solo artist and collaborator with other Latin American music luminaries, he has served as a musical ambassador to his American neighbors to the north and to the rest of the world with his richly melodic compositions and recordings that capture the irrepressible Cuban sound and its rich musical history. ABUC, his new album set for release on Impulse! Records on October 28, 2016, is just what the title suggests – a look backward at the evolution of Cuban jazz. Although nearly all 14 of the tracks on the album were written or co-written by Fonseca, the project as a whole overall feels like a retrospective of various musical styles and sources spanning several decades.

Roberto Fonseca - ABUC comes in at #28 on the Transglobal World Music Chart | Best Albums of 2017 Top 100.
